All the finger pointing in Washington yesterday created concern among traders.  Stocks dropped a few percentage points and Bonds benefited almost 50 bps.  Mortgage Bonds are giving some of that back today after the Philly Fed Business Outlook showed a sentiment reflecting almost double the amount of positive vibes this month compared to last month.  Also, the number of folks continuing to receive unemployment compensation fell 22,000 to 1.9 million.  While still a staggering number to me, it’s the fewest number on Americans to receive Unemployment in the last 29 years.
